Apex Magazine Runs Kickstarter to Fund 2022 after EIC Health Scare

Apex Magazine is running a Kickstarter to raise at least $10K with hopes of reaching their last Kickstarter total of $38K.

The pro-paying magazine went on hiatus eighteen months ago due to Editor-in-Chief, Jason Sizemore’s fight with mandibular cancer. Doctors replaced his entire jaw with his left fibula and a titanium plate. He jokes about it, saying, “I’m the cyborg editor now.”

Sizemore reports that Apex lost over one thousand subscribers when Kindle Periodicals cancelled the Apex account during the hiatus. KP refuses to renew it, saying they’re not open to ‘new’ periodicals. Sizemore argued with them that they aren’t new, but he’s gotten nowhere. If you were one of those subscribers, you can renew directly through the Apex website. Total cost is $24.00 for a year. (more…)
